24. Commander LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how much money has been allocated for emigration since the signing of peace; and how much has been spent?
§ Mr. AMERY
These are facts which are considered to be substantial by the Dominion Government, and the Commission which was sent from this country thought there was sufficient evidence to warrant the discontinuance of Government assistance to that form of emigration. But naturally we are keeping the whole matter constantly in view, and we are getting information all the time.
§ 28. Captain GUNSTON
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he has received the Report of the Inter-Departmental Committee appointed to consider the effect on migration of schemes of social insurance?
